A rainy but fun filled weekend

Since Steve is leaving this week(trying-to-keep-calm) for his deployment to Iraq, we are trying to fit in as much fun as we can. This weekend we thought we would sneak in another visit to Six Flags, but as you can see it was a little wet so we didn't stay very long. Steve is going to miss Madi's birthday next month and she really wanted a real soccer jersey, so Steve drove us to the Soccer store. And there it was....a real Mia Hamm jersery. With Ben's birthday just passing he is loaded so he bought himself a David Beckham one. After all that Madi's blood sugar was getting low and the rest of us just wanted some good food so we hit Dave and Buster's. I even got the chance to run into the scrapbook store and picked up the cutest new paper with rainboots on it....perfect to use to document this rainy fun filled weekend.

There are the boys!



There they are in their new threads....guess what they want to wear to school tomorrow.

Cute, cute, cute shirts they picked out! I can't wait to show B b/c being a soccer lover they will be right up his alley won't they?
And your rainy 6 Flags day. Bummer about the weather but Miss Madi sure looks like she still enjoyed herself!
Hang in there sweetie. I know it's tough but you can do it!
And I was serious when I e'd you about coming this way. You and the kiddos are more than welcome to a St Louis summer break! B would love to see his old Rhein Main buddies again and I'd love for C to meet you all!
Love you all~ L

Very cute! I am glad you are getting so much family time in before Steve leaves. My minutes reset so you can call after he leaves if you need to talk. I am thinking and praying for you this week. I think we need to find another race to work towards. You did so amazing at the last one!!!
